Hi everyone: i really hope someone out there can alleviate some of my anxiety now that i have decided to buy a sibe pup. She will be 9wks. old when i pick her up in 2wks. I already have a 9yr. old lab who is an absolute sweetheart, as gentle and easy going as can be. My partner wanted a sibe and while I had reservations due to all the negative comments I have heard from people after much research decided to go ahead with it. I'm already aware of all the neg. can't ever let them off leash, escape artists, etc... We live in the country with 19 acres none of which is fenced in so i know that she must always be on a leash. I've bought books specifically about the sibes. Just panicking a bit since I haven't had a pup in over 20 yrs. We both work day shifts with my partner being home around 3:30 and me 5:30 I know I'll have to find someone to legt her out at noon. My partner will take the week following her arrival off and I will be off work for 2 weeks after that. Any positive info would be so gratelfully appreciated.
